What is Expense Management Software?

Expense management software automates the expense management process by managing, processing, and reimbursing employees for business expenses. Using software to manage expenses provides several benefits. Automated approval workflows help streamline the approval process. Tracking and organization allows for easy auditing of employee reimbursements. Tools help analyze spending and cost savings opportunities by employee, category, or department.

Most expense management software offers several features which simplify the expense process. Mobile receipt capture helps eliminate lost receipts and streamlines the reimbursement process. The best expense management software offers automatic expense report generation and automatic import of spending from accounts or credit cards. Finally, look for integration with key industry partners, such as travel, HR, accounting and tax software.
